Jennifer Lopez‘s new show about a lesbian family, The Fosters, doesn’t even have a pilot to be viewed and critiqued, but that’s not stopping the anti-gay group One Million Moms from hating it. They’re encouraging their members to complain to the network, ABC Family, and threaten to pull their support for it and their advertisers if they don’t halt production. Oh, and the group also wants someone to explain how these lesbians were able to have “biological children.”
The group wrote on their website:
Obviously, ABC has lost their minds. They haven’t let up so neither will we. ABC’s Family Channel has several anti-family programs, and they are planning on adding to that growing list. ABC Family has approved a series pilot from Jennifer Lopez’s production company, Nuyorican, about a lesbian couple and their diverse family. Many families have already discovered that ABC Family Channel is anything but family-friendly. But because of family being part of the network’s name, we thought a warning should still be sent out for anyone who continues to watch the channel. A premiere date has not been set, but One Million Moms wanted to sound the alarm about this new series. It will be airing on the network soon unless we do something about it. They are in the beginning stages.
ABC Family reported the comedy-drama pilot, working with the title The Fosters, is about two women raising a “21st century,” multi-ethnic mix of foster and biological kids. While foster care and adoption is a wonderful thing and the Bible does teach us to help orphans, this program is attempting to redefine marriage and family by having two moms raise these children together. One Million Moms is not sure how the explanation will be given on how the biological children were conceived. None of this material is acceptable content for a family show.
Hollywood is continuing to push an agenda that homosexuality is acceptable when scripture states clearly it is a sin. As Christians, the Bible also says that we must speak up against sin. If we remain silent then we are guilty of sin also.
Lopez will be an executive producer for the hour-long project. Casting has not been announced. It’s still in the pilot stage and hasn’t been picked up for a series yet. Let’s stop this dead in it its tracks.
Actually, casting has been announced, and the lesbian moms will be played by Teri Polo (Meet the Parents) and Sherri Saum (In Treatment).

The group is encouraging its supporters to take action against The Fosters and ABC:
Please send your email to oppose ABC Family Channel’s pilot The Fosters and strongly encourage ABC to drop all plans to air the program. Let ABC know you and your family will not be watching “The Fosters” if it is in fact picked up for a series. Let them also know you are prepared to join thousands of other voices in urging advertisers to place it on their “do not advertise” list and consider pulling all ads from the ABC network in protest.
This works both ways, of course, and we can all feel free to to drop ABC Family a line and let them know we support the production of The Fosters. After that, if you’re still feeling inspired, you can write the Moms and share your theories about how lesbian families might produce actual “biological children.”
